WINSLOW — St. John Catholic School will honor veterans on Thursday.

Students will participate in Valentines for Vets, thanking heroes for their contributions.

The cards will be delivered to nursing homes, hospitals and Veterans of Foreign War locations.

Students and staff will also wear red, white and blue and all classes will concentrate on patriotism and the sacrifices service mmbers make. Local veterans are expected to visit the school and speak to some classes.

The event is part of the annual Maine Catholic Schools Week which celebrates the mission of Catholic schools, to evangelize students by nourishing faith and encouraging academic excellence while accentuating the importance of community and service in a nurturing environment.
